3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 fl oz bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. Pours pitch black with diminished tan head. Dense cherry aroma with roasted malt. Smooth vanilla note too. Dense malty flavoured with a acidic cherry flavour and light sourish citric note. Vanilla flavour to the quickly declining cherry base flavour. Goes into a smooth and more subdued cherry finish. Slight mead like. Stunning aroma, less impressive in the flavour.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of cherries, wood, and alcohol - like a cherry liquor. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt, wood, and cherries, leading to a bone dry kriek-like finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of fiver29. Pours completely opaque black with a light brown head. Intriguing and intense bourbon aroma with some alcohol shining through. Medium body, the roasted malt accents are surprisingly subdued but the beer is dominated by a distinct sourness. The cherry notes turn up late but are strong and distinct and also add almond and coconut accents. No real bitterness but an acidic finish. Unique. 051008

Opaque black stout. Smooth start to the palate but there is a trailing carbonated bite. A complex brew! Maraschino cherry, vanilla oak, a little bourbon and sourish chocolate. All well joined up. Overall a sweet tasting beer with many different aspects.

What a great candidate for barrel aging. Dark brown, 3 bubble head, scant lacing. Aroma of brandied/candied chocolate covered cherries. Taste is similar with a nice sourness. A winner.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
B8K. Near black. Thick, woody nose with light cherry....almost mead-like. Cherry, chocolate, some barrel notes on the palate. Big body. Candyish, though, the way the cherry comes across. Itís a little bit crazy, unfocused. Really doesnít come together - the elements seem to contrast rather than complement.

A: The pour is a dark, dark brown (you could easily call it black) with a nice (but thin) tan head on top.
S: The nose is very interesting on this beer. Thereís the obvious stout components of chocolate, roasted malt and coffee, but the cherries provide a slight tartness to the nose that works amazingly well with the rich roasted and bourbon aromas.
T: The flavor profile is unlike any other beer Iíve had. The cherries are slightly tart (not sour), and interact in such an interesting with the chocolate, roasted malt, and bourbon.
M: The body is medium to full with a low level of carbonation.
D: This is really a different beer, but an absolutely delicious one. The cherries are not sour, but they do provide a touch of tartness to cut through the rich flavors of the base beer and the barrel characteristics.
